Excerpt: This is a beautiful monitor on the desk with the bezel disappearing almost entirely when the monitor is off, and the circular base has a stable, but tidily small footprint. It comes with 2 HDMI ports, but only an HDMI to VGA cable.
Pros: Internal Speakers, Large Viewing Area, Small Footprint
Pros: Great monitor for all around use, 1080P high def and 3d support. HDMI D-sub and built in speakers sound better then many of its competitors for being built in.
Cons: From the picture it appears that the picture of the monitor goes almost edge to edge with a thin bezzle, however it doesn't it still has about a cm black spot so not quite perfect for multiple monitor setups if your looking to alleviate the gaps.

Summary: Pros: * Gorgeous Screen * Fantastic Design * Sturdy Build * Minimal Bezel * Dual HDMI Input * Capacitive Menu Buttons Cons: * Sub-par Speakers * Very Sensitive Menu Buttons Personal Information: Just a small snippet about what I do and how the MX279H applies to me.
Excerpt: Love this monitor, The design is awesome especially the seamless screen to edge, the round bezel but more so i am impressed with the colors on this. Its bright and very natural tones while watching TV shows / movies and photo editing.
Pros: Adjustable Viewing Angles, Great picture quality, Large Viewing Area, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint
Screen design is nice, display on par with other 1080 IPS screen. Extremely bad RMA experience.

Summary: The design on the monitor is nice. Pictures looks good like other IPS panel I used at work. Not great for game like most of the IPS screen. But I mainly use it for photos touching and daily browsing. This is the first Asus monitor I bought in my life.
Summary: Waste of my time and money... I bought the Asus Zenbook together with this monitor. On the first day of arrival I connected the monitor with the laptop through HDMI and everything worked fine...
Excerpt: I, like many others read all the reviews on this monitor, and decided to buy based on specifications as they met my needs. I received my monitor yesterday, read the accompaning documents, plugged it in and turned it on. It is connected to my 2012 Quad core i7 16gb 2.6 fusion drive Mac Mini.
Pros: Easy set up, Great picture quality, Large Viewing Area, Reliable Performance
Big, bright, "frameless", matte screen, and just beautiful. My big problem is now I need 2 more to replace my non-IPS Samsungs

Summary: I recently bought a MX279H to use with a Mac Mini to do graphics work. I have an iMac 27" at home, and my PC at work has 2 27" Samsung S27B550 monitors. I like big, beautiful displays and they're SO much easier to read on these tired old eyes.
Excerpt: This monitor is not unreasonable from a picture quality standpoint, but it suffers from an egregious design flaw. While the package includes both a DVI-to-HDMI cable and a separate audio cable, if you use the HDMI input port it disables the separate audio input.
